The Mezzalama Race is a multi-use pant designed for high-speed backcountry skiing, cold weather training, Tuesday night racing, and skiing into late spring. It replaces the PDG pant in Dynafit’s line, which many skiers adored. They surely adore the updated version, despite being named after a different race. On the seat, hamstring, and calf of the pant, the 4-way stretch Carvico fabric is an incredible material that’s abrasion resistant, breathable and water-repellent. Dyna-Shell windproof fabric occupies the front of the pants so you can charge confidently into the bitter wind. Durable zippered cuffs allow for long approaches on foot and yet will still keep snow out on a cold powder day. If you like to move quickly in the mountains and like to get creative with approaches and routes but have no time to slow down, the Dynafit Mezzalama Race pant is the way to go.
Stretchy drawstring waistband and flat seams are as comfortable as pajamas.
Two zippered hip pockets are good for cameras, food, sunscreen, or even a beacon.
Brushed with a light fleece lining to improve warmth without affecting breathability.
Reinforced hem and zippered cuffs are a superb blend of durability and flexibility to accommodate different boots.
UV Protection has been built into the fabric, so go enjoy the sun!
I enjoy these! I have worn these pants training in all sorts of conditions. I like that I don't get too hot on warmer days 30's-40's, and that they keep me warm on colder days. I have not bothered cutting them to fit the buckles of my Aliens, for me it does not seem like a big deal for training. However, I may consider doing such if I were to wear these racing. Lastly, I would recommend downsizing at least one size. I am 5'7" and 136lbs and the XS fit me well. Overall, I would recommend these to anyone looking for a solid pant to wear in all conditions while doing laps at your local resort, or heading into the backcountry.
Hey Scott, the pants pair well with the PdG boot, but doesn't have any specific cutouts for the PdG buckles. A similar pant that does use specific cutouts for a side-throw buckle is the Crazy Idea Cervino pant.
